Lore at the Music Box from The Dark Room by Rachel Sieffert

Music Box Films release of LORE, a powerful examination of the legacy of World War II on ordinary Germans--both survivors of the war and the generations that succeeded them. Left to fend for herself when her SS officer father and mother, a staunch Nazi believer, are captured by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, Lore, a fourteen-year-old German girl (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl,) must lead her four siblings on a harrowing journey across a devastated country. When she meets the charismatic and mysterious young refugee Thomas, (Kai Malina, The White Ribbon,) Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of hatred and desire as she must put her trust in the very person she was always taught to hate in order to survive.

LORE was adapted from award-winning author Rachel Seiffert’s novel THE DARK ROOM (Booker Prize finalist), that is based on her mother's experiences as a young girl raised in a Nazi household.

The film will be in opening at The Music Box Theatre in Chicago on February 15th.

LORE is the second film from Australian writer/director Cate Shortland (Somersault), and is Australia's official selection for the 2012 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
